Historic Newspaper clippings
For interest I decided to visit the Main Library in Manchester who actually hold on Micro-fish all the newspaper achieved dating back hundreds of years. My theory was that back in 1924 the naming ceremony of a lifeboat was a really big thing (I was amazed how big). I searched on and around the naming ceremony date and within an hour I had 3 newspapers worth of great articles, I'd never enjoyed history at school but this really brought the past to life. 25,000 people attended and churches across Manchester and Salford connected by wireless and sang sea chanties and said prayers............Amazing!
